Things are getting wacky around here. Did the photo shoot with Sports Illustrated yesterday. Entertainment television shows calling me at work, checking out the "rumors" of my relationship to Million Dollar Baby. All this is gonna blow over soon as the movie takes it's prizes.

I found this old interview I did for a magazine called "With it Girl" back in the day. Thought I'd share it. click on the picture of me, on the scale, giving it the hard-eye.

Stepping back in the gym for a minute certainly brought the bug back. Got to see alot of old friends and familiar faces. Even got to hit the double-end bag for a bit. Dub Huntley, my black daddy and hall-of-fame trainer predicted, "she'll be back."

If my shoulder stopped hurting so bad, that could be true.

In the meantime, the Evangenitals are spreading the sunshine all over and I'm loving the way it feels. I love being in a band. I love staying up late, eating cookies, having a boyfriend, sleeping in, being a student, a writer, a playwright, a director, a friend... and pretty much it's either all that OR being a boxer, for me.

Believe it or not, both sides of life are mighty tempting.

You know, Crispin Glover got enough settlement money to buy Tom Mix's old house when he sued Steven Spielberg for having an actor impersonate his George McFly character in subsequent Back to the Future movie(s) that did not feature Crispin.

That may mean there is legal precedent for you winning this case - that hiring an actor specifically to portray you and using tapes of your fights on which to base that performance - well that COUNTS.

Good luck.

I'm not sure I understand... the F.X. Toole story was written BEFORE he met Julio... so it's not the character in the story that's based on her, it's the movie interpretation of the character? Is that right? (Because I always thought that Maggie's story in "M$B" was based on the story of Katie Dallam, a novice boxer in Missouri who got permanently disabled in a fight in 1996 when sent up again a much stronger opponent.)
